Today’s Pedal Line Friday submission is from Lennard Schoonhei. If you have a pedal line (doesn’t have to be in a board) for your rig, please email me a photo, bio, description of pedals and routing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
So we start with the TC Mojomojo, which works great for bass. It gives me either a nice boost but I can also get this gnarly overdrive that I like more than the Boss ODB-3 I had before. The Source Audio Manta is used for synth-y sounds rather than a traditional envelope filter. The on-board overdrive/distortion/fuzz help with the filter responding to my playing-dynamics. Next up is the EHX Freeze, although I positioned that one between the Mojomojo and the Manta after this photo, because the LFO with tap tempo on the Manta works great in conjunction with the endless sustaining Freeze effect.
The Zoom MS-60b is the one I’d like to get rid of because I don’t like the design with plastic buttons on which it relies so much. But every time when I’m considering throwing it off the board it ends up staying because it has too many usable effects that otherwise take up too much real estate on my travel-easy compact board. It replaced my tuner pedal and I got a lot of extra effects as a bonus. Then there is the TC flashback mini which has a self oscillating toneprint going on. And all the way at the end there is the TC Ditto looper.
I can use this board for hours while looping and not get bored one second. The only thing I wish for is a better power supply. Right now everything is connected to a Diago Micropower but some noise/hum issues are still present. The gate in the Zoom takes care of that though.
